The Christmas Angel opens on 29 November the town's famous Christkindlesmarkt on Hauptmarkt square in the old quarter. This delightful Christmas city has so much to offer: a medieval atmosphere, authentic Nuremberg gingerbread, Nuremberg bratwurst, Advent and Christmas concerts in the churches, traditional Nativity scenes in the baroque church of St. Aegidius and in Spitalgasse, an exhibition of historical market stalls in the town hall, 'Christmas for children' on Hans-Sachs-Platz, the 'star' theatre at St. Katharine's Abbey, the international market on Rathausplatz featuring Nuremberg's twin towns, arts and crafts in the Handwerkerhof, a torchlit procession to the castle and rides on a horse-drawn mail coach. Nuremberg is Christmas in a nutshell.
